      Fred,

      There is no way I can give you any idea on the data passed per month,
      week, day, or even hour. It all depends on the APRS activity in your
      specified range as well as your specific configuration for beaconing.

      I highly recommend that anyone running this program have an UNLIMITED
      data plan on your phone. There are so many variables in the APRS-IS
      feed that you could very quickly rack up a bill that would astound you.

      PS. Be especially cautious of "disabled" data connections. AT&T in
      particular likes to switch you back to a "pay as you go" plan which can
      seriously put a dent in your wallet.

      For instance, here's my current detail with APRSISCE running 24x7 with a
      70 mile range configured from KJ4ERJ-12 coordinates:
